Intonation with 10s is spot on (or as spot on as you can get with a guitar without tempered frets). I've also got a Suhr Classic that has the Buzz Feiten tuning system ... the Mira sounds as in-tune to my ears all over the neck as the Suhr. Similar to the Buzz Feiten system, I believe PRS guitars have some compensation in the placement of the nut (it's moved ever so slightly towards the bridge from the "correct" position based on pure measurement of distance) ... and the stoptail has built in compensations that at least work perfectly well with 10s ... I believe the PRS blurb says the bridge will intonate well with 9s, 10s and 11s, but I've never tried 9's or 11's so can't comment on that.What is the intonation like on those things?
Indeed. Although I own and like quite a few PRS, my Starla is very special to me. As with the Mira, there's a simple, timeless elegance to the design, and both play beautifully and have familiar yet distinctive sounds.Very nice. Joe Knaggs really deserves a lot of recognition for the miras and starlas. Both are great guitars that attracted people who usually don't like a prs to the brand.
The finish on mine is vintage cherry and the wood is mahogany. It has a standard neck carve which I get along quite well with!Congratulations Enigma. You'll no doubt love that guitar. I've got one that's almost the same too ... mine is vintage cherry (which I think is what yours is ... though it's hard to tell vintage cherry from vintage mahogany in some photos) ... and mine also has outline birds.
What neck carve do you have? Mine is the "regular" (which pre-dates the current "pattern regular") and it's this carve that is one of my favourite features of the Mira ... the most comfortable neck I've ever played. Perfect thickness, perfect shape, perfect nut width.
I literally put the guitar flat on the guitar stand, well balanced and very carefully! A bit risky, but no accidents thus far.When you took the picture, how did you get the effect of the guitar floating in mid-air above the driveway detritus? Do you have a sloping glass-topped table to perch it on? Very clean, if so - nary a fingerprint to be seen!
